Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

Hi, I own a 2001 Olds Alero. Sometimes the engine

Hi, I own a 2001 Olds Alero. Sometimes the engine will catch once and then shut off - and won't want to start again. A mechanic said that the car probably is not recognizing the key code and is implementing the ignition security system. I would like to see if I leave the key in the partial ''on'' position for 10 mins (then let it sit for half an hour,)to see if it will reset itself. For this car do you know if I need to leave it on 10 mins then off ONCE, (then 1/2 hour rest,) or on/off THREE-10 minute intervals (then 1/2 hour)? Thank you very much! Diane

I have a 2001 Olds Alero. The transmission was working fine and I sat it on a hill for quite a while and now it does not shift properly. Sometimes it will not shift, however when it does it will work fine...


Unfortunately you now probably have a sticking solenoid in the transmission, but you also may have an oil pump problem in the transmission. These are expensive repairs, so I would try having the transmission oil replaced and perhaps adding an additive recommended for this.

2001 Olds Alero -- The service Engine Soon light is on. Car has 22K miles. Any Ideas on the most logical problem? Is there a reset so that I can check if it is just a fluke. Vern Dale


Hi Vern,
Get behind the fuse box on the side (L) door; remove the cover, turn the key on, but don't turn on engine.
Push red button and hold for a couple of seconds, and you'll hear a "beep". When it beeps 3 times, push the button in and it'll reset.
I have a 2001 Olds (Alero), and have done thiis a few times.
Do you have an Owner's Manuel? That's how we fig. out...

Good luck!

2.4 olds alero enging stumble


The two most likly causes of your Idle problen are, low fuel pressure. try installing a new fuel filter. Or the other one is the Air Idle control valve, can cause the exact problem you discribed with a cold engine. Fuel Injection engines do not have a choke like carburated engines do. So the idle is computer controled thru the Air idle control valve.
